Sorry if it's too much info! I know it's gross, but has this happened to anyone?
I am not taking iron pills, just prenatal vitamins that my doctor prescribed me. This has never happened before!
It's like dark blackish greenish...yucky icky icky!! LOL Im sorry ladies!
I had that problem to and I was just taking prenatal, I don't know what caused it. I just figured it was something I ate. It did it for about 2 weeks and now its normal again.
Black stool can be a sign that your colon is really getting cleaned out. It can be because of all the matter that was stuck in along the colon walls stripping out. It happens with some cleansing diets and such. If it presists, see a doc, but it's probably nothing to serious.
its more of like a medical term i guess? i know when u get constipated and u can go you can buy vitamin like things over the counter called stool softeners... and like at the dr's office if they need a urine sample its pee if they need a stool sample its poo.
Black poop can mean you are bleeding in there! :shock:
There is enough extra iron in just your prenatals to cause your stool to darken. Happened to me.
Try loading up on colon cleansing foods like fruits, vegetables and fibers and see if that helps. If not, then maybe ask your doctor.
